I meant the branch in the repository where ctypeslib lives in.
Anyway, it doesn't matter anymore since I merged that branch
into the ctypeslib trunk.

Now the problem with the 'u' suffix that you mentioned should be fixed, and
I also made a quick change so that the sized integer types from stdint.h are generated
correctly. So, please update your ctypeslib installation and trey again;-)
